Robinson leaves on loan for the season
Midfielder Anton Robinson has today joined Sky Bet League 1 side Coventry City on Emergency Loan for the rest of the season.
The 28 year-old midfielder will move to the Sky Blues until 31 May inclusive and is available for their game at home to Stevenage on Wednesday evening.
Robinson joined the Terriers from AFC Bournemouth in the summer of 2011 during Lee Clark’s tenure as Manager and made 30 appearances, scoring once, during the Club’s promotion season.
He subsequently made two appearances for Town in the 2012/13 Sky Bet Championship campaign, but joined League 2 Gillingham on loan in February 2013. He made 14 appearances for the Kent club, only to suffer a cruciate knee ligament injury in their home win over Rotherham United in April 2013.
Anton recovered from that injury and made his comeback for Town’s Development Squad in an Under-21 Professional Development League 2 North win over Barnsley on 2 December and has gone on to play five times as an overage player at this level, scoring once.
His contract at Huddersfield Town expires at the conclusion of the current season.
Huddersfield Town Manager Mark Robins commented:
“This move is a fantastic one for Anton at this stage of the season.
“He has worked very hard to recover from the serious knee injury that he sustained at the end of last season and has returned to full fitness, but he has been unable to break into our side we want to give him every chance to impress and secure a contract at another club next season. This loan spell at Coventry gives him the opportunity.
“Coventry still has a lot to play for this season – they are currently four points above the relegation zone in League 1 after overcoming their points reduction – and Anton can go and show what he is capable of.”
Huddersfield Town would like to thank Anton for his contribution at the Club and wishes him the best of luck for the future.
